Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

“Then I looked and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and the living creatures and the elder; and the number of them was myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honour and glory and blessing.” (Revelation 5:11,12).

It makes me smile when I hear sceptics talking about how boring heaven will be.
Sitting on clouds
Playing harps

They complain that we’ll have to praise God all the time, as if that is something awful.

Small minds have small dreams. Dreading praising one’s Creator shows just how far sceptics are right now from living life to the full.

God assures us that heaven will be neither boring nor will it entail lying around. We get glimpses of heaven during our lives on earth. For example, I sometimes find myself holding back from thanking God at bedtime because of where it leads. When my soul interacts with the very Spirit of the living God, I often find myself awake for hours with indescribable joy as thankfulness wells up. A peace that is beyond description settles upon me and a love that is supernatural envelops me. And that is from an imperfect knowledge of my Lord and King. When I am in His very presence, when I know Him as He is, in all His splendour and glory and power, well, it’s no wonder that praise in heaven is unceasing.


  1. The older I get, the more heaven becomes precious to me. Not just because age puts me statistically closer to death, or because I look forward to being reunited to believing friends and loved ones, though these are admittedly part of it. More than anything, I see that even the good things of this life, things that are among God's precious gifts, are themselves empty apart from Him. Everything else will wear out like a garment, but our Lord and Savior is forever.

  2. Hey! How are you. Trusting that you made it through the storm (Irene) ok. Or maybe I'm not correctly remembering where Maryland is.

    Anyhow, good to hear from you again. Yes, you're right, "Love God and do as you please."

    See you there brother!
